I want to contribute code that would make Pillow Python 3-capable so
that Debian/Ubuntu might pick it up, and Python 3 developers would
finally have their PIL back. I gathered from the notes that Pillow was
a continuation of PIL as a fork, and since it's active, I expect it
will be more attractive to the distros than a straight port of PIL

I hoped to hear from Alex Clark. He looks like the main contributor.
